While outing-and-abouting I saw a personalized license plate that was brilliantly suited to its vehicle! It immediately transported me back to playing the classic board game—Clue, also known as Cluedo—with the neighborhood kids.
Fitting with one of my three aspirations—becoming an international spy—the game was good training for sniffing out answers:
WHO killed Mr. Boddy at his Tudor Mansion: Sultry Miss Scarlett, sinister Mr. Green, snobbish Mrs. Peacock, pompous Colonel Mustard, clueless Professor Plum, or the innocent looking housekeeper and cook, Mrs. White?
HOW did they do it: With a lead pipe, wrench, candlestick, rope, dagger, or revolver?
WHERE did they do it: In the kitchen, ballroom, conservatory, billiard room, library, study, the hall, lounge, or dining room?
And while the game didn’t require the players to discover a motive, it prompts the question: WHY do we do what we do: Is it the lens we view life through? Is it the baggage we carry? Is it a reaction to outside stimuli (person, place, thing, event, or opportunity)? Is it a product of evolution or creation? Is it genetic, cultural, or heritage based?
Why do you think we do what we do?
